Republican Hysteria

It’s good to see the affirmation that it’s not “just a few” Republicans on the fringe who are behaving hysterically.  It’s not just the foaming pundits on Fox ‘news’.  It’s not just Rush and the neo-con shock-jocks.  It’s not just the people at Palin’s gatherings.  It’s a trait found all the way at the top of the party. From Joe Wilson’s outburst during the televised presidential address to Texas Representative Randy Neugebauer’s outburst during the televised session of the House this weekend.  

On Saturday, 03/20 Republicans gathered at the United States Capital building to wait for our elected officials to arrive so they could hurl insults and racial slurs at them.  On Sunday, 03/21, the Republican leadership said it’s just a few people, nothing to worry about, and the Republican leadership does not approve.  But they do approve and those at the top of the party act the same way when someone disagrees with them – shouting them down or hurling insults.  Later that same day – still 03/21 – a Republican party member stood in the chamber of the House and hollered baby-killer…to a leading anti-abortionist.  That’s hysterical behavior. 

It’s ridiculous because (a) the target of this completely out-of-line outburst by this Republican was a well-established anti-abortion voice in the House, but mainly (b) it’s ridiculous because the vote was not about the legality of abortion.  One way – or the other – the legality of abortion remains the same. 

The party of “No” is like a child in a grocery store.  It stomps its feet.  It yells and it screams.  It gets hysterical.
